    I had to kill my week old chick today, she was so sick, weak and was suffering. I know it was the right thing but it is so hard to take such a little innocent things life. had my husband help because I couldn't do it by myself. just looking for support from those who have been through this.

    It's never an easy decision but it's humane. So very sorry for your having to do this AND for your loss [​IMG]

    I had to make that decision with Candy (Chihuahua, 10yo) 6yrs ago, I still think of the events leading up to the decision. My head knows I made the right decision. When we love & have animals, it's a decision that we must make sometime or the other. Again, sorry you had to deal with it and your loss.
